Philly may be the city of brotherly love, but presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton is going to get little love from the city’s cops when the DNC starts.
According to Breitbart, the Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police lambasted Hillary Clinton in a statement for deliberately ignoring the families of slain police officers, insinuating that Black Lives Matter rhetoric played a role in recent shootings in both Dallas and Baton Rouge.
The FOP statement also criticized the Democrat National Committee for its choice of speakers, which was heavy on Black Lives Matter-supporting individuals. That speaker list included the mothers of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Eric Garner.
“President John McNesby and the membership of Philadelphia Lodge 5 FOP are shocked and saddened by the planned choice of speakers at the upcoming DNC in Philadelphia,” the statement read.
“The Fraternal Order of Police is insulted and will not soon forget that the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton are excluding the widows, and other family members of Police Officers killed in the line of duty who were victims of explicit, and not implied racism, and “being on duty in blue,” it continued.
“It is sad that to win an election Mrs. Clinton must pander to the interests of people who do not know all the facts, while the men and women they seek to destroy are outside protecting the political institutions of this country.
“Mrs. Clinton, you should be ashamed of yourself if that is possible,” the letter concluded.
